A Day In The Life - Maryam at AOL




Maryam A.
Intern - AOL Mail






Hello world. I am a software development intern with the Anti-spam team in AOL Mail. Nowadays for the most part, I've been doing Java programming but my first few weeks involved C, some shell scripts, and performance testing. I am a junior in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon, and I'm getting a minor in discrete math.

I like to play competitive foosball in my free time (yes, foosball, it's not a typo). I also like to travel, so I do both when I get the chance.

Follow me on Twitter to see what a day in the life of the AOL Mail team is really like!
